Marine Cathedrale by saraqael Marine Cathedrale by saraqael
...This was the first picture I took of my Michiru costume about a year ago. I never uploaded it anywhere because I wasn't so keen on my face or hand - but I'd really like to have more photos, so what the heck.

Also, I'd like to add that I'm musically retarded and can't actually play the violin (or any instrument for that matter) and I know I'm holding the bow wrong. I'M SORRY. :<

Supposedly "Marine Cathédrale" is the name of Michiru's Stradivarius ... ? I'm just going to take wikipedia's word for it since my creativity for picture names is non-existent.

Yeah no. You're holing it fine. A lot of beginners hold it waaaaay more awkwardly. Besides, everything else about the picture is also stunning, so ... yeah.

I was curious about the Strad name (and I didn't read all the comments, so my apologies if this is a repeat), but here's what I found out about the Strad to which Naoko Takeuchi was probably referring:

La Cathédrale; year of make: 1707; currently owned by Nigel Kennedy

You can find more info here, maybe I skipped one that's actually called "Marine" Cathedral: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_…

Cheers!

So, you're not holding it nearly as wrong as the Neptune at ACen this year. Just sayin'.

WHY ARE YOU SUCH AN AMAZING MICHIRU/NEPTUNE? It's embarrassing for the rest of us. It makes me sad. I can never cosplay a senshi (darn thick hips). And everything you do is so good!

i always thought that "marine cathedtrale" referred to the location at which Michiru and Haruka were ambushed and had their Talismans expressed (since that was literally a marine cathedral). lol. On a separate note, your Sailor Moon stuff is WONDERFUL, and I was absolutely thrilled to see (on your "Holding out for a Hero" pic) that you've been to AB... now i can at least DREAM of meeting you at some point, if I ever get to go to the con ;)

The highlights on your wig are simply gorgeous to look at! :love:
The makeup also looks really good in this shot.

I'm not a great fan of what you're wearing, though.
But you certainly make one of the best cosplays I've ever seen. (so far)

This is absolutely gorgeous, and I didn't even notice the bow was upside down until you pointed it out! X-D Also, I would hold the violin further down the neck! That way it looks like you're playing it even more! ^_^

For some odd reason, I never -really- liked Michiru...

But I'll be damned if you don't bring a whole new elegance to her. You really captured her essence so well. <3

Absolutely lovely. <33

Beautiful cosplay! The wig is perfect, the uniform looks great, and the model has a very mature and pretty face and long fingers that I think really suit Michiru :D
